Informal & Written Valuations & Advice
Whether you need an approximate guide price with a view to selling art, or formal written valuations, for Insurance and Probate for example, we can help. We can provide condition reports and offer guidance on the viability of repairs or restoration. Wherever possible, we can also offer advice on the authenticity of a painting and help determine the period. At extra cost, and subject to feasibility, we can research the artist, where known.
Please contact us to make an appointment to value your items or send an email with, clear, high resolution photographs of each item to be valued, front and back, clearly showing the condition and any damage. Please also tell us the size of the items. We may require more information.
Informal valuations will be charged at £8.00 for one item. Subsequent items will be charged at £5.00 each.
Written valuations will be charged from £20.00 for one item. Subsequent items will be charged at £10.00 each.
Research of a painting – £30.00 – subject to feasibility.
Please note that we cannot accept liability for losses, financial or otherwise, to any persons connected with our valuations service. Prices are intended as an approximate guide only and values or paintings are subject to change as the market is dynamic. We cannot offer refunds for valuations. Advice given is based on our 35 years’ experience and the information you provide but is not infallible or exhaustive.
